of texas in the last five years. roughly one million lost jobs in california. it is amazing. one of the points i made for writing a book on this, what we are seeing is one of the great wealth transfers in american history geographically from states like california that do not get it right, and my state, and states that do get it right, like texas. this is one reason to be bullish on the future of texas. one of the interesting things is texas does a much better job, in my opinion, of economically assimilating immigrants so they are successful here. california is more of a welfare state. it indoctrinates immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas for jobs. people go to california for welfare. you are seeing the differing economic outcomes as a result. texas is the model other states should be emulating. >> stephen moore from a recent discussion we covered. when you see some of those clips, the video portions, you can see them all in our video library. he was comparing jobs in california and texas. we will go to texas next. john, o

colleague, ted poe, a cowboy boot-wearing conservative republican from texas could agree on, you would have said, not much. today we are partners in an issue, however, that makes sense regardless of your politics. ensuring sustainable equitable access of clean water for nearly 800 million women, men and children who don't have it and 2.5 billion without the most basic sanitation services. ted poe and i think that politics should stop with water. that's why today we're introducing the paul simon water for the world act of 2013. since congress passed the paul simon water for the poor act in 2005, the united states has become a global leader in efforts to increase access to clean water and sanitation, developing and implementing some of the most innovative approaches to help those in greatest need. we must not only maintain this progress but work to further refine and focus the efforts at usaid and the department of state by enacting the world act. we are committed because dirty water and lack of sanitation fects all areas of development assistance. especially the case when it comes to women a
